Year 2 meet their Penpals

Year 2 have taken part in a fantastic project this year with an initiative called The Linking Project.

This is a national project involves schools from contrasting localities becoming penpals. We have been linked withYear 2 at Belsay Primary School. We have been writing to our friends, having regular zooms and celebrating our similarities and differences throughout the whole year.

Last week we met our penpals for the first time at The Laing Art Gallery. We played some ice breaker games to get to know more about our penpals.

We created some collaborative art projects with our penpals.

We ate our lunch together and had a good chat!

It was a fabulous day and we will continue to write to our penpals until the end of the school year.
